christie a taker? are the people on the jersey shore takers? not makers? are the people in connecticut and on staten island who were devastated by sandy takers and not makers? the congress of the united states, over the last couple months, just voted about 60 or 70 billion dollars to repair the devastation in the new york metropolitan area through new jersey up to connecticut. and i guarantee you that a lot of people who enjoyed the jersey shore or a lot of people who lived on staten island might under other circumstances find a message like ken cuccinnelli's somewhat appealing about the takers in american society, about how the people who become dependent on government. but then when disaster struck the whole rest of the country through the congress weren't takers or makers. they were givers. because this is one country and this is a place where people get together when necessary. now, that was one event and one disaster. but the whole idea of what federal programs are about are not about makers and takers. they're about giving everybody a chance. >> they sure are. >> that was the spe

's christy paul to bring you up to speed. >> reporter: the prosecution laid out a timeline detailing how jody arias killed travis alexander. at 5:29 p.m. arias takes a picture of alexander alive in the shower. moments later she stabs him in the chest. prosecutors believe he was still alive and arias followed him down the hall to the bedroom where she slashed his throat. then dragged his body back to the bathroom, accidentally taking pictures all along the way. investigators believe once they were in the bathroom she shot him in the forehead. based on the location of the shell casing they believe that happened near the sink. and then his body was stuffed in the shower. >> those pictures may be grisly but they are critical. the accused is giving her side of those grisly pictures and her ex's grisly demise. >> did you kill travis alexander on june 4th, 2008? >> yes. i did. >> why? >> the simple answer is he attacked me. and i defended myself. >> jody arias is due back on the stand in a couple hours. beth, you've had a front seat to this story. my former colleague at court tv. beth, you and i hav
a run. i have got to tell you some are saying he could have the endorsement of governor christie. imagine them stumping. it could be pretty incredible. he would have to run against, perhaps, frank lautenberg, or cory booker, beloved in new jersey politics. an uphill battle. perhaps senator rivera. >> he has been a wild media personality. have to wonder how his background would play into the race. obviously the media, a lot of things we say, you run for office people dig that stuff up. interesting. hope no one throws a chair at him on the campaign trail. >>> also, beyonce, speaking of her and the super boel her documentary behind the scenes of her life "life is but a dream" premieres on hbo tonight. for the first time, she opens up about her miscarriage. pregnancy was going well, goes back to the doctor. there was no heartbeat. she says -- i went into the studio and wrote the saddest song i have written in my life doesn't name the track on her album. the first song i wrote for my album and the best form of therapy for me because it was the saddest thing i have ever been through. t
come to my attention and i have brought to the attention of the transit board, governor christie, all my representatives, that the new jersey transit bus fleet, half of it is being leased to privately run companies for one dollar per year per bus. they get to pay the fair wage thing with the unions. they been a delay that number and a drivers a far less amount. they do not get the same benefits. it -- guest: they do not get the same benefits? host: they do not get the same benefits, they get half the fleet, split with three or four families, and i do not know if they all and in vowels, but most of them do, and my point is these are cash cows, and they use these for everything from the new york marathon to the conventions. they are making hundreds of thousands of dollars and the owners of these companies are getting free auto buses. what is the point? this is corruption. can you do anything about it or bring it to the peoples attention because i have tried. host: i will leave it there, christian and have the congressman respond. guest: i will have someone on my transportation staff loo

christy veins, sean smith, tyler woods and glen dougherty. deaths i believe could have been prevented. what has become clear is that the united states is woefully unprepared for what occurred in benghazi. what is also clear is that following the attack, the administration provided the american people inaccurate information about the true nature of the catastrophe and those events in benghazi in my discussions with the most senior administrative officials, i've been told that on the night of the tragedy, although there was confusion about the nature of the first attack on the compound, where the ambassador was located, the second wave of attacks, on the annex, were unequivocally a terrorist attack. i have no doubt about that, that they were. this was apparent because of an angry mob doesn't use coordinated mortars and rpgs. so i have no question about that in my mind, despite the clear evidence, it took this administration over a week to publicly admit, as many of us knew already, that it was a terrorist attack, not simply a protest that turned violent as ambassador susan rice adamantl
't in sync with republicans. >> he's pretty moderate republican. in new jersey, chris christie is the republican governor of new jersey. i assume geraldo would have a shot. >> i think he would. there's a lot of hispanics in northern new jersey. as someone who has always advocated to have more candidates, i would welcome his participation. i think he would bring flair to a race we thought would be ho-hum. there's a lot happening between frank lautenberg and cory booker. you have chris christie with a popularity in the 70s. i also reached out to the rnc and they have reached out to geraldo rivera's camp and would be welcome to help him in any way that they would help any other candidate. they have reached out and they think that he's seriously considering it. >> it s it appropriate for cory booker to say that he's interested in the seat even before frank lautenberg said whether he's going to seek re-election? >> he's truly someone that i admire and would love to see continue the senate but cory booker has to see what his future plans are. he's been outstanding mayor of newark. he
real quickly. you said it is the new jersey way, i accept that, it is bipartisan. governor christie exhibits the same kind of responses and has a pretty high approval rating. so we will go forward with taking you at your word. we will have the kind of relationship where we can have a blunt, straight forward, fully disclosed working relationship. i think it is critical for us to provide oversight, the ability for us to have the right kind of agencies so we know where each other is and move forward together in terms of what needs to be done to provide intelligence to that needs to be done to protect the american people. i wanted to say that. i want to follow-up on the leaks because i have a few more questions. it has been discussed with others but let me ask a couple of other questions to clear things up in my mind. my understanding is that the associated press had information relative to a planned operation, perhaps it had something to do with airlines and explosive devices. apparently they had that for a few days and had gone ahead and released it. i'm assuming your answer -- your t
in a hypothetical 2016 match up in texas against former governor marco rup owe, chris christie. when you consider the latino population, could it turn texas blue in 2016 if she runs? >> i'm skeptical about this. it is a left-leaning poll, but what president obama did in 2008 and 2012 amaomoly and i'm not sure a traditional candidate could do something like that. not that it's not possible, but a very uphill battle. i suspect that 2016 will look a lot like 2000, 2004, in terms of traditional states being blue and red. that will go back to the rhythm. >> doug, a senior adviser, would you not commit last week, i'm told, because i was off and i was like -- told all about this. does this poll make you want to jump in? >> i think it's too early for anybody to jump in. but i think -- i think this is the new normal. barack obama was a historical transformational candidate. created a lot of excitement, and brought a lot of people to the polls, but with demographic and political changes happening. it is unheard things like texas being a more puff pell or blue state is a definite possibility. >> i want to q
to happen. >> heather: let's bring our political panel. trey hardin and christy, former spokesperson for howard dean. thank you both for joining us. trey, i'll start with you, is this 911 statement a preview of what we can expect when panetta testifies? >> throwing the intelligence community under the bus is nothing new to washington, it's not a partisan issue either. the dance has been done by republican and democratic white houses alike as in the movie, the potomac two step. the intelligence community it's convenient to blame them. they are a faceless players in this because by the very nature they are not allowed to speak to the media or respond to the criticism. as for panetta and the hearing, until there is a specific evidence against one of the players, i don't think his testimony will be anything different than hillary clinton's was. >> i could not agree with more. in terms of what we're going to hear from panetta, he will say the same thing from hillary clinton. essentially the same answers that he has already given in many interviews over how many months since the benghazi a
, early precursor to probably the most, if not hillary clinton, loved politician today, chris christie, straight talking, who he is, the embodiment of a region, unapologetically, and obviously stylistically very different but kind of built from the same mold. he was one of the greatest. >> he was another of the generation of these guys, these leaders, that we're losing now to who served in world war ii, was drafted in 1943, landed on a beach in france in 1944, you know, by the time he was 20 something years old and then went on to do all these great things. and he was still, until the end, a fighter. he was smart. he was funny. he'd come on msnbc and get into charming -- if aggressive fights over questions. >> you put that in quotes. >> about new york. he was the mayor of the city at a difficult time, too, donny. new york was not a pretty face when he came into office in 1978. >> a very difficult time. some of new york's toughest times. >> absolutely. remember things in the mid-'70s with the ford administration, the sense that new york was on its own and was going down. koch became the
to my attention and i brought it to many people's attention, including governor christi, all my representatives, that the new jersey transit buses, half the fleet something leased to privately run companies for $1 a per bus. they get to pay, supposedly, with the wage, fair wage thing, the unions, they manipulate that number and they come out and pay their driver the amount. they don't give him any of the benefits. guest: they don't get the same benefits as if they were working on one of the other buses. caller: new jersey transit itself. if you were working for a private carrier leezing our buses we pay for $1 a year. they get half the fleet. they split the half of fleet with three or four families, i don't know if they all end in vowels, but most do, my point is, they come up the head of new jersey transit board came back with me, we get money for -- these things are cash cows, they use these buses for anything from the new york marathon to the p javits certainty convention. they are making thousands and hundreds of thousands and owners of these companies are basically -- they
